Update: I got a Vitamix!

February 27, 2011

Have I ever mentioned that I love smoothies?  I drink one almost every day.  It seems that smoothies are becoming more and more mainstream.  Evidence: Many of my friends now drink smoothies; Arizona made Callie a kale smoothie on Grey’s Anatomy a few weeks ago; and February’s edition of Real Simple magazine did a two-page spread on smoothies.

To support my smoothie addiction, I finally gave in and bought a Vitamix blender!  I’ve had it for a couple of weeks now and have been enjoying the smoothest smoothies ever.   Real Simple gave a recipe for a carrot-pineapple smoothie [3/4 cup pineapple, ½ cup ice, peeled orange, 2 chopped carrots, 1 banana].   I had tried carrots in my smoothies with a regular blender but was turned off by the chunky texture.   Now I can enjoy perfectly smooth and frothy carrot smoothies whenever I want.  🙂

Today I used my blender to make creamy cashew cheese to fill beet “ravioli” and served it with lightly steamed beet greens.  WOW!

And for dessert?  Chocolate banana ice cream!
